What Are The Last 3 Beauty Products You Bought?

I am a curious cat { AKA nosey bi-atch! } but funnily enough, I am not a huge fan of those “What’s in my handbag?” posts.

Nothing wrong with them but it always makes me feel a bit uneasy when I look inside my handbag to find strands of hair, biscuit crumbs, chewed up chewing gum wrapped up in pieces of paper, snot-covered tissue paper { the perks of being a mum to a toddler! }, etc…

Anyway, back to the curious cat thing…

I’d love to know what are the last 3 beauty products you bought?

Benefit They're Real Mascara & Bioderma Hydrabio Serum

Review : Winging It with Benefit They’re Real Push-Up Liner

Benefit They're Real Push-Up Liner in Australia, Benefit Cosmetics They're Real Push-Up Liner

If you’re a cosmetics chaser, you will have read on many beauty blogs about the soon-to-be-released Benefit They’re Real Push-Up Liner.  I was a lucky duck (quack, quack) and got my hands on one of these babies a few weeks ago and I’ve given it a good trial run.

For the first time ever, out of all the Benefit cosmetics I have tried – Fake Up (HG undereye concealer), POREfessionalDr Feelgood, Ultra Plush Lip Gloss, They’re Real Mascara (my HG!), etc – this is the first one I didn’t fall in love with straight away!!  My verdict of this highly-raved gel eyeliner pen is that I like it, but I don’t love it.

Let me tell you why…

Coral-icious Make-Up

Coralicious Make-Up

First of all, I just want to say another big THANK YOU to everyone who left me lovely messages after hearing of our awesome news in my last post!!!  I can’t stop smiling!  And to top it off…does anyone remember I had that work-related stress issue?  Well, I got good news yesterday and that has been resolved too!  *pops open non-alcoholic champagne*

Anyway, a few weeks ago I was feeling bit under the weather with so many stressful things on my mind…so what better way to brighten up my day than take photos of pretty make-up with pretty colours?!  So I gathered a number of coral coloured goodies and went all paparazzi on them – very CORAL-ICIOUS!!!

NEW LOVE : Benefit Fake Up Crease-Control Hydrating Concealer

benefit fake up, benefit fake up medium, benefit fake up concealer

Do you remember me telling you that I attended the Benefit Fake Up event a few weeks ago?  Well, I was blessed with one of these babies in the goody bag.  *squee* Like all Benefit cosmetics, Fake Up has adorable packaging and design which cannot be faulted except that this isn’t fingerprint-proof.  Anyway, it is different to all the other concealers I have in my stash…

First up, can you believe it’s the only concealer stick I own?!!  I am extremely wary of concealer sticks because back in my young days (many, MANY moons ago), the formulas of them were atrocious and they did the adjective “cakey” a lot of justice!  But Benefit’s Fake Up Concealer is nowhere near cakey – in fact, it’s the total opposite!!!
